Steven Epp is back with A Doctor in Spite of Himself. The traditional story of a girl feigning illness to avoid an unwanted wedding erupts into hilarity when Epp decides to play doctor. In a pitch-perfect production punctuated with live music, this ridiculous physician proves that love and laughter remain life's best medicine.

It's "a fun night for everyone," declares the Seattle Weekly. "Director Chris Bayes' take on Molière's carnivalesque satire of the medical profession is a low-stakes fusion of commedia dell'arte and vaudeville - dry-rubbed with lewdness, scatology, pop music, and political incorrectness." It's "smartly choreographed anarchy, combining old gags and new," agrees the Seattle Times. "For cheerful, nimble, bawdy silliness, this dish of meringue is hard to resist."
